Pirramimma Heritage Limited Edition Grenache Shiraz 2020
- Rich, full-bodied
- McLaren Vale
A great vintage and some great old vines. Pirramimma selected only the best barrels for this release, one that is sourced from low-yielding old vine vineyards in McLaren Vale. There’s brightness on the nose, exhibiting rose, raspberry, pomegranate and cherry. Have a sip and you’ll find more of the same, layered upon cranberry, nutmeg, Christmas pudding and cedary oak notes. It’s rich and savoury, ready to go now, yet structured enough for years of aging.

McLaren Vale is a region that lives in the shadow of the hype of the Barossa. While it has played on Shiraz as its drawcard, and continues to battle (quite rightly) with the supreme power of the Barossa, perhaps the most exciting wines from this region are its old vine Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre/Monastrell - whatever you want to call it), and its more recent foray into Spanish and Italian varietals. Both the sun's warmth and the reliable salty afternoon gully breeze make the climate closer to Mediterranean than many other Aussie regions, and some of the Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo and Sangiovese from here are sublime (to name only a few). Awareness, proper consideration and sense of place are key attributes to the region's success, and its recent win against urbanisation reinforces the value of the viticultural region.
